The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown

The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown (2009)

I got this book out with the intention of reading over Easter.  I almost got it finished then, but it was a bit of a monster so my plans didn't quite work out.  After Angels and Demons, I didn't really feel like any more Dan Brown, and I was weary of reading this one.

He is a clever man, knows a lot about symbols and Masons, and now Washington DC, all of which was quite interesting.  The tough bit, was trying to string a story imbetween all the interesting stuff.  At first I enjoyed it, but the second half for me dragged, and seemed to bumble together without a satisfying conclusion.  I am never a big fan of the running, explosion, torture, chasing novel.  Oh well.  3/5
